By Jacob Porteous

The season for open air theatre is fast approaching and for 2014, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre has some great events planned. The Sunday Events programme boasts a series of one night only performances including Seth Lakeman, Comedy Store Players, and Clare Teal with her Big Band.

Also this season at the venue, The Luna Cinema present outdoor screenings of Breakfast at Tiffany's and, celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Bond classic Goldfinger.

Formed in October 1985 and recognized by the Guinness World Records as the longest-running comedy show with the same core cast, the Comedy Store Players are well known for their performances in London. They will return this summer to Regent's Park Open Air Theatre. Sunday 6 July, they will delight audiences with their inimitable blend of comedy, chaos and improvisation.

Nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005, and winner of the Singer of the Year and Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Seth Lakeman will appear at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre on Sunday 3 August. The folk singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist will be playing numbers from his latest album Word of Mouth.

Clare Teal, multi-award winning singer and BBC Radio 2 broadcaster, will be celebrating the music of her heroines, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee, and many of their illustrious contemporaries in Divas & Me! Joining her on stage will be her Big Band, made up of 16 stars of the UK big band and jazz world.

Also returning to Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park is The Luna Cinema. Sunday 17 August, the unforgettable Bond classic, Goldfinger will be screened in the Open Air Theatre. With the Aston Martin, the iconic theme song, and Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore, this is seen by many to be the quintessential Bond.

Following on from Bond, a screening of the classic romantic comedy, Breakfast at Tiffany's will be held on Monday 1 September. Don't miss Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, one of the most memorable screen roles of all time.
